In a yet another damning video released by the Center for Medical Progress, the humiliation of Planned Parenthood business partner StemExpress continues.
StemExpress CEO Cate Dyer is caught on tape making jokes about delivering whole baby heads in the mail and laughing about the unsanitary conditions of some clinics she buys baby-parts from.
Dyer said to undercover actors that when her company sends out entire heads of aborted babies, “They’ll open the box, go, ‘Oh God!’ So yeah, so many of the academic labs cannot fly like that, they’re not capable.”
She says research institute technicians tend to be squeamish about the parts they receive.
It’s almost like they don’t want to know where it comes from. I can see that. Where they’re like, ‘we need limbs, but no hands and feet need to be attached.’ Or they want long bones, and they want you to take it all off, like, make it so that we don’t know what it is.
Oh yeah. And their lab techs freak out, and have meltdowns, and so it’s just like, yeah. I think, quite frankly, that’s why a lot of researchers ultimately, some of them want to get into other things. They want to look at bone marrow, they want to look at adipose- sort of adult human, kind of adult based sampling. They want to avoid publishing a paper that says it was derived from fetal tissue.
Dyer explains that her company had a great relationship with Planned Parenthood.
I just think that you’re in the cause or you’re not. If you’re not in the cause, they don’t need you around. They need champions and if you’re not a champion, then you should go. That’s just- I don’t know, the clinics are very guarded, as they should be. Who do they let in their house, they let champions in their house. Right? I think it’s that same concept and ABR has just never understood that.
Dyer also says she’s seen “rampant, rampant problems with bacteria in certain clinics (laughter). Some where you’re kind of in question of should they really, you know (laughing)… I’ve seen staph come out of clinics… So, I mean, I’ve seen all sorts of things come out of clinics.” Dyer did not specify if she was talking about Planned Parenthood clinics.
StemExpress is one of the largest middlemen in the baby-parts business. It obtains freshly aborted baby hearts, lungs, liver, and whole heads from Planned Parenthood and then turns around and sells the parts for an enormous mark-up to research facilities around the country.
StemExpress fought vigorously to keep video of its CEO from being released. It filed suit in federal court to stop the release of the video, but a judge vacated the temporary restraining order on Friday that precipitated the release of a transcript of the undercover meeting with actors from the Center for Medical Progress and the release of an edited version of the video.
The privately held company, which might want to go public one day, severed ties with Planned Parenthood after the videos showed one of their former employers talking about the grisly work she was asked to do on the company’s behalf.
The long knives came out for StemExpress whistleblower Holly O’Donnell, with the abortion advocacy website RH Reality Check publishing a story accusing O’Donnell of a kinky personal life. The article was pulled under pressure.
As pressure mounts on Planned Parenthood, protesters in more than 300 cities marched in front of their clinics. Organizers say close to 70,000 people participated.
